They Slash – You Burn. Stop Cuts to The Fire Service

We are facing huge cuts to the funding for the fire service, placing homes and lives at risk. The Fire Brigades Union are launching a new campaign with a frank message – They Slash, You Burn – starting with a lobby of parliament tomorrow.
At our meeting on Monday we will have Paul Cockburn from the local Fire Brigades Union talking about the cuts locally and what effect residents are likely to see after the 12.5% cuts which will see 11 stations close with the loss of 600 firefighters.

Monday 12th November
6:30pm

Unison Offices, 19th Floor McClaren Tower, Priory Queensway, Birmingham, B4 7SL.
Offices have level access with accessible toilet, children are welcome at our meetings, but we cannot provide a creche service.
